Playoff Bound teams, post your teams for analysis (1 Viewer)

I won't bother posting my dynasty teams right now, but my main redraft league, I'm 8-1 in 1st place, but behind in overall points to 3 teams. I really could use a better QB, but Brooks will have to do I think.Although I'm in a good position, I'm worried about my depth.QB A. Brooks (NO - QB) WR M. Harrison (Ind - WR) RB S. Alexander (Sea - RB) WR/TE T. Holt (StL - WR) WR/TE J. Witten (Dal - TE) WR/RB N. Burleson (Min - WR) WR/RB Ro. Williams (Det - WR) BN K. McCardell (SD - WR) BN R. Droughns (Den - RB) BN M. Bennett (Min - RB)BN J. Harris (Car - RB) BN J. Jones (Dal - RB) K D. Brien (NYJ - K) D J. Vilma (NYJ - DL) D R. Lewis (Bal - DL)D T. Suggs (Bal - DL) D M. Peterson (Jac - DL)

 
Just looking through the rosters, there's a lot of teams with Manning at QB. I'd be curious to see if any other player is more strongly correlated with a good record/playoff position. God knows he has singlehandledly won games for me in the past 2 weeks.
And yet, the "Sharks" said go RB-RB, don't take a QB until round 6, etc.Looks like a lot of :bs: now.
 
5-4, though started the season out 1-3 before I made a series of moves to build this team. Right now i'm 2nd in the league in points (by 1 point), but 5th in the league standings(not in playoffs). Redraft league, standard scoring. We don't start a TE have the option of starts 4 WR/TEs.

QB: Brees, Rattay, Geise

RB: Alexander, Holmes, F.Taylor, Wheatley, Blaylock

WR: C. Johnson, Keyshawn, Mason, J.Smith, Burleson, A.Davis, Galloway, McDonald

D/ST: Philly

The next 2 weeks are make or break as i'm going up against the 2 leaders in my division. I'll need Fred to step up with Priest is out.

12 team redraft. Start: 1QB, 1RB, 2WR, 1TE, 1K, 1D/ST, plus one at any position. Must roster: 2QB, 2RB, 4WR, 2TE, 2K, 2D/ST, and 2 at any position. Scoring: 4pt pass TD, 6pt rush/rec TD, 1/30yds passing, 1/10tds rush/rec, 1pt per reception for WRs & TEs only.6-3 & 2 games behind the leader of my division (who I play this week). We play all 17 weeks with no in-season playoff (top 5 teams redraft from NFL teams in the playoffs for a total points pot). I'm 3rd in points scored about 100 behind the aforementioned division leader.QB: Green, GarciaRB: F Taylor, C Brown, Wheatley, C TaylorWR: Harrison, Chad, Bruce, Rod GardnerTE: McMichael, F JonesK: Elam, CarneyD/ST: Buffalo, MiamiSince we have pretty even scoring between QBs, RBs, & WRs I've been playing matchups at my flex; some weeks it's 1-2-2, others it's 1-1-3. Isaac Bruce has been my best draft pick - got him in the 8th round. I'm going a little gaga owning both Taylor & Brown, as far as injuries go. But the ability to start 3 WRs instead of 2 RBs alleviates that a bit. Trent Green was killing me early in the year, but has come on. McMichael has been fine, so have Elam & the Bills.I think I'm solid for the playoffs as a wild card if I don't catch the guy in front of me - the only glaring draft mistake was taking Fred Taylor instead of Curtis Martin.

I can believe you're 5-4. You're pretty thin at WR and you've got QBs who started slow this year. While Davis was out/underperforming I'm guessing you weren't getting a lot of points from your flex position. The good thing is your patience with Green and probably Davis will have you laughing in the playoffs.

6-3 in my big $$ auction league and in first place in my division of our 10 team league. Have had only one week of the nine where I won the $100 for most points yet currently my boys are 3rd overall in points scored.Lineup:QB: DCulpepper,GFrerotte, VTesteverdeRB: CBrown,CDillon,RJohnson,the 3 main backups for those guys and RLeeWR: DJackson,EMoulds,ALelie,JMcCareins,EParker,DGabrielTE: ACrumpler,DClarkPK: MVanderjagt,KBrownD/ST: Baltimore,AtlantaInteresting year thus far for my club. Not a great club by any stretch but a very consistant one as I have never scored less than 91 pts and topped out once at 142. Most weeks my club hovers in that 115-125 neighborhood which is invariably enough to get a W. Started out 4-1 led obviously by Peppers huge first month and some sweet CBrown, Baltimore D and CDillon days. Have went 2-2 since however, which directly coincides with Brown and Dillon having injury issues and Pepper being withought Moss. Won a big game this past week though to maintain the division lead and with 5 games left(3 vs the "easiest" and lowest scoring teams), I'm 90% certain to gain a playoff berth if not a divisional title with a chance at winning my 3rd title in 6 years. But getting into the playoffs is and always is my goal and once there....anything can happen.Going to need Brown, Dillon and DJax to stay healthy...that's for sure. And it will make things alot easier if Pepper can even do 3/4's of what he did the first month.....we'll see how it plays out.-Max

 
See Signature for team.I can't believe I'm top in the standings at 6-3. Mind you, I'm currently on a 2 game losing streak. :(

 
RECORD 7-2

QB - Trent Green, Ben Roethlesberger

RB - Shaun Alexander, Corey Dillon, Chris Brown, Warrick Dunn

WR - Andre Johnson, Brandon Stokely, Jimmy Smith

TE - Antonio Gates

DB - Gibril Wilson, Ken Lucas

LB - Steve Foley, Nick Barnett, Andra Davis

DL- Patrick Kerney

K - Lawrence Tynes

I'm 7-2 in a ten person redraft. I currently have the best record and most points. I started off my draft with 4 runningbacks Alexander, Dillon, Brown, and then Dunn. Then I picked up Andre Johnson followed by Darrel Jackson then Jimmy Smith. I waited til round 8 to draft Trent Green. I picked up Rothelsberger, Stokely off waivers. I had rotating kickers for a while until I got Nate Kaeding who I had to drop this week because of a BYE but I plan on picking him up again.

The D players - Nick Barnett and Andra Davis were drafted although I reacquired Davis in a trade. Kerney was waiver and my DB's were both waiver wires.

My one trade this year was 2 weeks ago when I traded Darrel Jackson and Eugene Wilson for Antonio Gates and Andre Davis.

I like my team and I think I have actually managed it pretty well this year. I might be getting the hang of this.

I took my qb round 8, I think ultimately either will work.

I don't think anyone would be a shark if they held steadfast to a pattern like that while ignoring a player for value.I intended to do that almost every draft - RB-RB and wait on QB. However, I ended up with RB-WR-QB one league, RB-WR-RB in another, WR-RB-RB in a third . . . I won't ignore value in lieu of a planned strategy. Especially at the top of the draft.I would be highly unlikely to take either of the top QB in the first - or even up to the late second, but I considered them both as good value from about 2.11 on down since the impact RBs were gone, and I was only enthralled with the top-4 or 5 WRs (whiffed big on TO).

Both teams need to win out and were hurt with byes.

 
If your QB isn't named Manning or Culpepper, he's part of big bunch that are all pretty similar ultimately. I think most draft boards had those guys going somewhere between 11 and 24 which was reasonable at the time. This year they finally broke far enough away from the pack to matter and I'm sure next year's rankings will adjust for those 2 (and just those 2) accordingly - and even at that there are certainly contract issues in Indy that have to come to pass.Now that Green finally came around, I think my Green/Delhomme and Bulger/Green combos will serve me just fine.-QG

Look at my roster in this post. I drafted Brady in round 7. Went RB-RB (bennett round 2 :bag: ).

I lost a few games in the redraft league consistently starting McNair only to watch him stink it up or leave injured. I am still trying to upgrade at TE in both leagues but no one is biting or wants too much.

Guy had LT2 and Droughns on a bye this week. He must win out and he is playing the team right above me so I need him to win also. He proposed this last week and I thought he was kidding. I wanted to see how the Vikes RBs shook out since I owned both.

If your QB isn't named Manning or Culpepper, he's part of big bunch that are all pretty similar ultimately.
I don't agree with that. What I will agree with is that once you passed C-Pepp and Manning in your draft, it was wide open where the remaining QBs would end up.I would definitely say those who spent a relatively high pick on Bulger, McNabb, Favre or Brady (and now Green is coming around) are pretty happy, and those who spent a high pick on McNair, Vick, or Hasselbeck are kicking themselves.It's the same thing over in the WR world: Harrison Holt and Moss are still near the top (Moss gets an injury pass - he has never missed a game, so that one was unforeseen) and the next group of Ward, Owens and Chad Johnson meant the top 6 WRs went 5 for 6 success rate. The next batch from WR 7 through WR20 was a crap shoot, but now there are clearly a few desirable WRs who came from that group.I think there are definite differences in the QBs.
 
Started out with an even better RB Stable but did not have the backups. I started with T. Henry and Q. Griffin as well as C. Brown, D. McAllister and Pittman :cry: I have done some nice trading like picking up R. Smith for L. Gordon, then Keyshawn for K. Collins, then traded R. Smith and Keyshawn for A. Johnson. NET L. Gordon for A. Johnson. not bad! :thumbup:

Are you going :fishing: ?VBD -- grab value where it happens. Manning fell to me in round 3. I took a lot of stock in Dodd's "the perfect draft" article, and ended up with 3 RB, 1 QB, and 2 WR at the end of round 6.My strategy in redraft is now a simpler make sure you have 2 or 3 RBs by the end of round 6, and don't necessarily go RB RB in round 1 and 2. I can't claim that this is original, either.Oh, and being lucky. Very important.

Great points Mr.Levin.This thread really took off. It's great to see the FBG board running on all cylinders.
 
I'm 7-2 in a 12 team redraft with the team below in my sig. I went RB RB with J.Lewis and Edge and took McNair :thumbdown: fairly late. I made a very daring trade of Jamal and Rice for Vick and Patten, hoping Vick starts turning it on by the playoffs when I may need some more QB help. Understand that w/o Jamal, I still have 2 RB studs starting every week with my choice of Edge, Tiki, Droughns and O.Smith. Also to help out at QB, I traded Keyshawn for Carr early on and have started a consistant Carr almost every week for awhile.

I've dared to let a lot of name players go to waivers. My thrown away team includes QB's McNair, Collins and Warner, RB Pittman, WR's Clayton (biggest regret of the bunch), Gardner, Toomer and Patten, TE D.Graham, DEF's Steelers and Broncos, and PK Vanderjagt. :eek: But I've filled their spots with the likes of future up and comers such as Droughns, Onterrio, Julius Jones, Boldin, Eli Manning, and McCardell, who are paying off already :thumbup: , or I optimisticly hope will be in a few more weeks.

Honestly the small roster size drives me nuts. I don't always want to let these guys go so quickly, but I usually find most of my moves to work out as upgrades in the long run. And my ww flurries seem to boost the others to be more active and occasionally let go someone who interests me.

Only 5 players - Edge (2nd), Tiki (4th I think), AJ (3rd I think), Bruce (5th I think), and Witten (some way late round) - remain from my drafted team. No small coincidence that they are the same ones that were my best value picks of my draft. I've been happy with how I've kept my depth fresh while discarding so many name players. Every year I tend to watch more news of everything throughout the league and make some moves before the others do. (Hence my latest pickups of Eli and JJones.) By grabbing Onterrio and Droughns to back Tiki and Edge, I'm now not missing Jamal really at all. (My latest ww temptation is Deion Branch, but I don't think that I will.)

All that said, lil' ol' undervalued-every-year Tiki has carried me more than anyone else though. :boxing: Go Tiki go! :popcorn:

Sorry if I put too much strategy reply in a who's your team question. So many moves begs for a little explaination.

 
My team got 7 wins and 2 lost.. Couple of time my teams barely won and got tied once, but my bench got most points..My qb: Chad Pennington (hurt), B. Leftwich (hurt), David Garrid (just pick him up), K. Warner. My best qb is B. Leftwich.. Other rookie is philip riversRB: Priest Holmes (hurt), Micheal Pittman, M. Moore (hurt)(rookie keeper??), Sammy Morris (for Insurance) Best rb Priest HolmesWR: Jimmy Smith, B. Lloyd, S. Moss (nearly bust, but start him every lineup except on bye week), David Terrel (rookie qb dont throw him much),, N. Burleson.. Best wr:: Jimmy Smith..TE. Kellen Winslow (rookie keeper??)Kicker: R. Longwell and Josh BrownDef and special team:Baltimore Raven12 teams.. This game will be tough because other owner has B. Farve, J. Walker, A. Green, T. Barber, Darrel Jackson.. Good thing is other owner is not in my division. For last 4 games will be easy because #1 is 3-6, #2 is 1-8 #3 is 2-7 and finally #4 is 4-5. Number 1,2,4 is in my division (we have 3 division) So seems like I have a good chance to be leader in my division.. What do you think of this rosters so far??

Definitely has paid off. Traded Griffin for Duece early on (owner decimated by injuries)Made some nice FA pick ups in Brees, Griese, Clayton & both Ds which I play based on matchupBecame worried about Brady's low production & injured WRs so trade for Bulger - unfortunately Brees (and Griese) in trade just before Brees became 2nd coming of Fouts2 wins in next 5 wks gives me 1st rnd bye. Besides Priest's injury my biggest concern has been, besides last week, the low output from Ward. Don't like his playoff sched of Balt & Buff either. AJ has slowed down a bunch too but I see nice matchups upcoming for him.Currently trying to unload Martin in a deal for LT. I'd like to upgrade there but with Blaylock & Duece I'll have good starters each week & Martin's playoff sched not bad - home to NE & @STL.Hoping this is finally the year. Have won other leagues but for various reasons have never won this league.

Record 6-3 & 2nd in points scored.QBGriese, B Harrington, J Rattay, T Roethlisberger, BRBBarber, T Blaylock, D Holmes, P Jackson, S Jones, K WRBerlin, E Bryant, A Fitzgerald, L Johnson, B Johnson, C Lloyd, B TEGraham, D Smith, LKAkers, D Peterson, TD/SRedskins, W Vikings, M TWe start a QB, RB, 3 WRS, TE, 3 Flex, K, & D/ST.Holmes & Barber have carried this team. The QBS are solid, WRS have been average, Graham was on fire early, Akers has been a rock, & the Skins have been consistent. Bottom line is the team needs Holmes healthy to seriously contend.

 
12 team redraft, start 1 QB 2 RB's, 2 WR's, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D.5-4...Neeed 1 more win to clinch a playoff spot.8 of 12 teams make the playoffs.QB - Leftwich, Carr, BrunnelRB - Portis, Stayley, Duckett, BennettWR - Harrison, H. Ward, Warrick :hot: , Lloyd, K. Campbell, S. Smith :hot: TE - Dallas Clark, GatesK - J. Brown, BrienD - SeattleI started off with Dunn, T. Henry, Witten, Putzier, and Gannon.Did not have H. Ward, Brunnel, Dallas Clark, Bennett, DuckettAfter S. Smith went down I tradsed Henry for Hines Ward. (It was the other owners idea).Then I traded Dunn and Putzier for Pennington and Dallas Clark.Then I traded Pennington and Witten for Gates and Lloyd who I had dropped at one point and someone else had picked up off of waivers.I'm out of trades and out of waiver wire money to use. We have a $$$$ limit for the season and we blind bid every week for free agents.Gates saved me from a loss last week with that monster 3 TD game. QB's - There were 12 QB's off the board in our draft by the time pick 6.05 got back to me. Gannon got hurt so I traded for Pennington but, then Carr and Leftwich stepped up. I trade Pennington away to get Gates and Leftwich goes down. So I picked up Brunnel off waivers. :bag:If Leftwich gets back in time for my league playoffs I'll be ok using a combo of Carr and Leftwich at QB.RB's - I drafted alot of RB's for depth and trade bait and I rweally needed it as 4 of the 5 WR's I drafted went down at one point or another.With Stayley hurt I have to play either Bennett or Ducket this week again.I'm hoping Stayley rests up and comes back and stays healthy. Otherwise I might be hurting come round 1 of the playoffs.WR's - As long as Ward and Harrison stay healthy at WR I'm good to go.Lloyd makes a nice back up wioth his success of late but, I really can't see me starting him barring an injury. The Campbell pick up was just flat dumb. At that time I didn't have a healthy 3rd WR at all and Lloyd had already been taken. Poor poor planning on my part.K - Matt Hasselback please show up and give me some FG's please ?D - Another in season gaffe. I had Washington and Seattle to start. With Seattle starting fast I thought I'll just dump Washington after Seattle bye week as I really needed to get more WR's. I was lucky SEA scored a D TD last week.I am weak here.Luckily I am in the weakest division in the league.I'd be thrilled to make it to the SB with this collection.

12 team redraft league .... no trading allowed .... Draft Slot - 10 .... Record 8 - 1QB - D.Carr, J.DelhommeRB - J.Lewis, C.Martin, W.Dunn, M.Pittman, J.Jones*WR - M.Harrison, L.Coles, P.Burress*, KeyJohnson*TE - A.Gates, J.ShockeyK - VinetarieD - Eagles, Falcons** denotes WW This team is built around balance and depth at all positions ... I have yet to post that monster type game we all hope for, but with this squad it just doesn't happen. This team leads the league overall, in head-head and total points and it's only loss came in week 7 vs one of the leagues weakest teams, with Carr, Plex & Coles on bye and Delhomme stinking it up.My QB's were drafted late (rnds 9, 10) with QBBC in mind and have shared the starts with Carr getting 5 of the 9. ... League Position - 9thThe TE's were drafted high Shockey 5th round and Gates 8th and have proven to be the difference maker most weeks, Shockey has yet to start and has only matched Gates point production once thus far. ... League Position - 1stThe RB position is strong but not dominate, with Martin being the MVP to date of the bunch, J.Lew's suspension didn't have any effect and he's actually been benched once in favour of a better match-up elsewhere. ... League Position - 3rdThe WR's are lead by my 2nd rounder Harrison and with the addition of Plex & Key off wavers in weeks 6 & 7 provide plenty of scoring punch every week and give me lots of food for thought with weekly match-ups. ... League Position - 4thKicker - League Position - 2ndD/st - League Position - 5thI'm hoping to finish the regular season 1st overall with a possible 11 - 2 but more probable 10 - 3 record, thus obtaining a 1st week bye into the play-offs where anything can happen. Is this a Championship team ??? .... only time will tell ... my heart say's yes, my gut say's no ...Key to the season thus far .... Good Health / NO Injuries Team MVP .... A.Gates

 
Here we go...7-2

Keepers going into the draft:

Manning/ F. Taylor/ M Harrison/ D Mason/ K Mccardell/ Rodney Harrison

14 team, 6 keeper league with IDP draft is 18 rounds so most players with preseason upside are drafted.

I traded M. Harrison and Antowain Smith for Priest and Plaxico in week 4 when Harrison and Priest were struggling.

Then I traded Plaxico and Chester Taylor for Isaac Bruce in week 7. Taylor was in for Jamal Lewis then.

Then I traded a FA pickup of Stokley for Zach Thomas in week 8.

I was 2-2 before the Priest trade and now am 7-2 and high scorer in league by 200 points.

Here is my current team, FA's in blue, traded for in red:

Martz/ Schottenheimer

Manning/ Brees

Priest/ F. Taylor/ L. Toefield/ D. Blaylock/ D. Rhodes/ Greg Jones

D. Mason/ McCardell/ I. Bruce/ Troy Brown

A. Gates/ Chad Lewis

R. Longwell/ P. Dawson

DL- Justin Smith/ Chike Okeafor

LB- Sharper/ Bruschi/ Earl Holmes/ Zach Thomas

DB- R. Harrison/ N. Harper/ B. Walker/ Jerry Wilson

The point of my post is to speak for MAKING a good team after the draft. Those of you who didn't draft as well as you'd have liked, can still make something out of the season with some help from FBG's and persistence!

:thumbup:

 
8-1D RedskinsS GrahamD CulpepperL JohnsonD StaleyT JonesJ LewisC BrownJ StevensA GatesM MuhammadN BurlesonJ McCareinsR MossLost the one game when the Giants rocked the Vikings.Cpep and Mewelde did nothing, Moss (played one series), and Thomas Jones got hurt all in one week.

 
I am in several leagues, but this is my best record. 16 team league starting QB/2RB/2WR/TE/PK/DST. I am currently 8-1.From the 2nd pick position my first 4 picks were RB-Priest, RB-Tiki, RB-CBrown, WR-CRogers (ouch).I picked up E. Johnson and packaged him with Tiki to trade for Onterrio and Holt at the start of Onterrio's suspension....the other owner was desperate for a RB now & I needed a solid WR1....E Johnson was scoring FF points like a WR at the time and Tiki was on fire....I got Onterrio back off suspension in week 9 when Brown was on bye. The trade worked out well.Current roster...QB - Leftwich/GarciaRB - Priest/CBrown/OSmith/LJohnson/Holcombe/PinnerWR - Holt/Lloyd/Toomer/BJohnsonTE - Witten/JolleyPK - KBrownDST - Atlanta

 
In my original league (14 teams), i am sitting at 8-1 and on a 7-game winning streak. Next best team has only 5 wins.

Q - Trent Green, Delhomme, Ramsey

Had Roethlisberger off waivers early, but traded him early for Rod Gardner. I'd like that one back. Have been trying to upgrade to CPep or Manning.

R - Priest, Droughns, Wheatley, LJ, WGreen

Drafted Priest #2 overall, and Curtis Martin in 3rd round. Traded CuMar for Moss+. Picked up Droughns before his breakout week. Wish i had Blaylock.

W - RMoss, Chad Johnson, Chris Chambers, Brandon Lloyd, Anquan Boldin, Jeremy Shockey

Chambers/CJ/Boldin all drafted. Lloyd picked up on waivers after last place team panicked in week 3 or 4 and cut him. No TE required.

D - Tampa Bay or NJ Jets

K - Morten Andersen (side note - why is he consistently ranked so low by FBG?)

 
We do idp as well my starters are QB -brooks rb -holmes, drougns, rudy johnson wr chad jonson ,hines ward kicker-dawson DL- rodgers, lang LB d smith, m peterson, db-A wilson , d shaper

 
How's this for a team that is truly under-performing.12 team performance scoring league, QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, Flex, TE, Def, PK lineup requirements,Favre, Edge, Portis, Owens, Moss, Barlow, Gonzalez, Washington, VanderjadgtAnd yet I am 6-3, trailing in my own division, but holding steady in the wildcard race.

BennettThis is a five man keeper league and my keepers going in where Manning, Pennington, A.Green, M. Bennett and S. Moss. Traded Pennington for Holt, before the injury and was lucky to find a couple of good fill in players in Martin, Givens and Driver.

 
10 team dynasty league 7-2 Someone had actually gave up on this team before the season and I took it over. I took Brown, Williams, and Delhomme in the rookie/FA draft. QB Plummer, Vick, DelhommeRB Green, Dillon, Brown, McGahee, DunnWR R. Moss, R. Williams, J. Walker, D. Mason, R. Wayne, P. PriceTE E. Johnson, J. WittenK Akers, LongwellD Washington, Minnesota

 
12 team, Keep 4 off., 2 IDP (Keepers bolded) - All TDs 6pts, 1pt/rec, get pts for KR/PR as well.

8-1, 2 game lead in division and league overall

QB: M. Hasselbeck, D. Carr

RB: D. Davis, T. Jones, L. Suggs, W. Green

WR: H. Ward, C. Johnson, M. Clayton, D. Northcutt, J. Gaffney, R. Williams (D. Branch and T. Calico on IR)

TE: A. Gates

DL: C. Grant

LB: B. Urlacher, N. Barnett, P. Tinoisamoa, C. June

DB: G. Wilson, J. Azumah, B. Sanders, M. Green

Note: Had Ricky as my RB1, would've kept him over Hass, had Ricky not retired.

Traded Warrick Dunn and Jerry Porter for Clayton somewhere around Week 5.

Traded C-Mart for Suggs and 2K5 draft picks this week.

I clearly depleted my depth at RB, but we have the option of going four wides, one RB, so I feel I'm OK with Davis, Jones and the CLE committee. C-Mart minus Pennington makes me nervous, and I like CLE's schedule during our playoffs better than the Jets'. Additionally, the guy I traded with is tied for last place, so the picks (his 2nd and 4th rounders) should be pretty high in each round.

I know I overpaid (albeit only slightly, IMO) for Clayton, but he's peformed up to my expectations as my WR3.

 
Just looking through the rosters, there's a lot of teams with Manning at QB.  I'd be curious to see if any other player is more strongly correlated with a good record/playoff position.  God knows he has singlehandledly won games for me in the past 2 weeks.
And yet, the "Sharks" said go RB-RB, don't take a QB until round 6, etc.Looks like a lot of :bs: now.
Look at my roster in this post. I drafted Brady in round 7. Went RB-RB (bennett round 2 :bag: ).
Funny - I see a lot of rosters with Brooks on them. Tells me it paid to wait on QB....
 
Playoff Bound teams, post your teams for analysis
7-2 in my keeper league in a 14 game regular season with two playoff rounds and then the Super Bowl in week 17. Here's my roster with comments:Daunte Culpepper- I hope that Moss returns healthy for the FF playoffs. The worrisome game might be week 17 at Washington. If I can make it to the Super Bowl, that would be C-Pepp's matchup.Byron Leftwich- Obviously on my bench all year. If he heals well, he has a much better matchup in week 17 vs. Oakland. Naturally, Culpepper will have to be stone cold for me to play Leftwich at that point.Edgerrin James- His last three games aren't a cakewalk vs. Baltimore, San Diego, and at Denver. Still, I think Edge will finish strong.Onterrio Smith- Still giddy about snatching him off waivers at the beginning of his suspension.Brian Westbrook- He's been on my bench almost the entire season. Has good matchups in weeks 16 (Rams) and 17 (Bengals).Curtis Martin- In my auction league, I picked him up for a paltry $5. If I can reach the Super Bowl, Martin has a potentially great matchup at the pourous Rams.Hines Ward- More TDs would be nice, but he's still getting targeted a bunch.Chad Johnson- Certainly a dissapointment, but let's hope Chad and Carson's trip to Indy will give them a spark.Anquan Boldin- Picked him up in the draft dirt cheap for $2. If he begins developing a better rapport with McCown, he has two good matchups late with the Rams (week 15) and the Seahawks (16).Jason Witten- I recommended that people pick up Gates at the beginning of the year, but unfortunately, a shark in my auction draft had a lot more cap money than I and grabbed Gates up. Thankfully, I pickup up Witten for only $1 in week two.Washington D- Got them off waivers two weeks ago.New England D- A dork in my league dropped them last week and I scooped them up. I love their week 17 matchup at home vs. San Francisco. That smells like a shutout to me.
